Have you ever wondered what scares Slender Man? Turns out that Deadpool does!
In a move that surprised no one, Sony Pictures has decided to move their upcoming horror film Slender Man from its original release date in May to August 24.
This move may actually benefit the film, as late August has provided a fertile ground for horror films in the last few years (Don’t Breathe, Annabelle: Creation). It was essential that Sony moved this film from mid-May as it would have debuted on the very same weekend as Deadpool 2 in an already over saturated marketplace for blockbusters, with Avengers Infinity War and the young Han Solo film both being released in May. Deadpool 2 moved into the May 18 slot two weeks ago (after Fox shook up their X-Men universe titles, shipping New Mutants from an April 2018 release to February of 2019).
